Beauty Buys: Marc Jacobs, Hourglass, Tarte, Clinique

'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. Its the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

Recently (in April), Sephora had their sale and I had posted my huge wishlist. I did manage to pick few products from that list but then the list got changed and I picked some other things as well.

My first pick was this lovely HOURGLASS Best of Hourglass Set. I wanted to try their Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss and Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara. This set was perfect because it had both of these along with their very popular Veil Mineral Primer and N° 28 Primer Serum. Wonderful set to try!

My next pick was this Marc Jacobs Nail Polish in Baby Jane. The formula of Marc Jacobs Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquers are excellent (have tried one from my past purchase) and this is such a lovely, neutral color.

I wanted to buy a Marc Jacobs Lipstick, but I got so confused ordering online, that I just ended up ordering a MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Lip Lock Moisture Balm. The tube looked cute too!

I am such a sucker for cute bags and Skincare products. CLINIQUE Even Better Skin tone corrector used to be my absolute favorites many years back. Then I used other new products and totally forgot about it. I thought I would try this once again, but didn't get that same old bottle on the website. I noticed a similar product that says CLINIQUE Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20. I didn't buy that because I didn't wanted any SPF in it.

CLINIQUE Better, Brighter Skin Set came with

CLINIQUE 7 Day Scrub Cream Rinse-Off Formula (an old favorite)
CLINIQUE Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Lotion Broad Spectrum SPF 20 (new to try)
CLINIQUE Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector (I hope this one works)

Tarte Maracuja Oil has been reviewed here and I like it. If you read my blog, you probably know my love for Beauty Oils. TARTE Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment is one eye treatment I wanted to try since it was released. Usually, eye creams take long to finish and they are pretty expensive to just toss them half unused. This set has a small bottle of Maracuja Oil and Eye Cream. Perfect to try out the cream. A little goes a long way, so I will be able to test this out and see its effectivity, before committing on a full size one.

I don't see this set online anymore, but many Sephora stores still have it and it costs just $10 for two products!!

I will post the in-store Beauty Buys from the same sale in another post later. I have yet to click few pictures.

What were your picks from the sale? I will review these products in near future, once I have tried and tested them.

  1. Baby Jane looks gorgeous! I love the miniature Tarte sets that Sephora's been carrying lately. I see them online but never actually in the store though.
